Streaming Audio
Want to listen at work, but standard media transport streams, such as Windows Media Audio™ and RealAudio™, are blocked by your corporate firewall?  Or perhaps you do not want to deal with downloading or running a separate application (player) to listen?  Then streaming audio is the option for you.

You may use the “Streaming Audio” navigation menu in the sidebar on the left to gain access to sermons from recent primary services (typically from the last 60 days).  Should you wish to reference the readings or any other service content, the Prayer Book reference links, and the “Order of Service” link, found to the left of the player controls, will take you to the lessons and the Order of Service leaflet for that particular service.  This may be done at any time, regardless of whether or not playback has already been initiated.

Please note that pop-up blocking software may or may not interfere with the reference links.  In order to avoid potential challenges with functionality, you are encouraged to disable pop-up blocking for the entire St. John’s site in general.

NOTE: Pre-November 30, 2014, playerless audio presented using Clipstream™ streaming media software.
